The sun shown over the gorgeous Colloca Estate Winery for Kaitlin and Brad’s one-of-a-kind spring wedding. Birds sang, the blue water, which the property overlooks, shimmered, and the land was filled with laughter. Really.
For B&K’s engagement session, Kaitlin kept telling me, “I’m so awkward, just tell me what to do! I know we’re going to look weird.” But let me tell you: when brad let his eyes wander to his lovely bride-to-be, and Kaitlin gave my camera that stop-you-in-your tracks stare, phew! Friends! There was nothing awkward about it! It was pure magic! These two could not have made my job easier, and that’s one of the reasons why we love them.
But honestly, the number one reason why I loved working with Kaitlin and Brad is because they loved each other. Every look they gave, every motion they made, screamed, “you are my best friend, and you are my safe place.” And it’s this that we love. They have a spark about them that says, “we’re never going to age; we’ll always be young, and when per chance, we happen to grow old, we’ll do it hand in hand.” That’s powerful stuff, friends! It’s contagious. I left working with them and came home and gave my better half a giant hug.
I just know that if Brad and Kaitlin ever track me down for an anniversary session, he’s going to take those same glances full of love, in the direction of his lady, and she’s going to laugh at all his jokes.
Congrats to two of the cutest couples ever.
Brad had to say goodbye to his very dear friend far too early. As a way to remember him and have him there at the wedding, close to Brad the entire day, Kaitlin gifted Brad with a beautiful pocket watch holding a photo of Brad’s beloved companion. Such a thoughtful and heartfelt gift it was.
Oh, Colloca Estate Winery golden hour, how we love thee!
